St Mark's Church of England Primary School

A family working and growing together to reach our potential.


Design and Technology Statement of Intent


At St Mark’s CE Primary School, we believe that Design and Technology should provide children with a real life context for learning. Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think creatively, use their imagination and to design and make products that are relevant to the real world. To meet the requirements of the National Curriculum it is essential that each year group carries out the following Design and Technology units within a year: cooking, sewing and construction. We revisit these areas in each year, building on previous subject knowledge and experiences. At St Marks we value the importance of skills within Design and Technology and we have a bespoke skills progression map for each year group to ensure that all children are building upon skills already taught in order to deepening their understanding.
